    "LOS ANGELES—The Recording Industry Association of America
    announced Tuesday that it will be taking legal action against
    anyone discovered telling friends, acquaintances, or associates
    about new songs, artists, or albums. "We are merely exercising our
    right to defend our intellectual properties from unauthorized
    peer-to-peer notification of the existence of copyrighted
    material," a press release signed by RIAA anti-piracy director
    Brad Buckles read. "We will aggressively prosecute those
    individuals who attempt to pirate our property by generating
    'buzz' about any proprietary music, movies, or software, or enjoy
    same in the company of anyone other than themselves." RIAA
    attorneys said they were also looking into the legality of
    word-of-mouth "favorites-sharing" sites, such as coffee shops,
    universities, and living rooms"

    Its not far off the real situation where TVNZ sent a nastygram to cease
    and desist to site which was providing an epg for TVNZ channels.
